Luka Hoodie.

I'm finally trying one of the patterns from Sewing For Boys! I was ambitious and started right out with an "advanced" pattern, the "Luka Hoodie." It's a pullover hoodie/windbreaker.

Super cute, right?


I cut this out on Friday evening, so I was hoping to blog the completed hoodie today, but it was not meant to be. This pattern earned its "advanced" status not by being super difficult, but by having kind of a lot of pieces! Doesn't help that I decided to use a different lining fabric in the hood and on the cuffs than the rest of the lining, in order to showcase (but also conserve) my precious and costly Spoonflower blue choo-choos.


See them there, in the hood? Here's a better view.


Periodically, Joe stops by to point and say, "blue fway!"

So far, it's coming together well, with just a few idiosyncrasies caused by my modifications (as usual). I'm hoping this will make a really cozy little pullover for my little train/fway-lover.

More soon!

  6. Thanks everyone! This was a surprisingly involved project, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. Now, to just get the kid to wear it ...

    Demandra, it's never too late to get started! I did kind of learn to sew as a kid, true, but I've really mostly learned to sew in the past few years here. :-)
